Howto setup SiS190 Ethernet - not working for me

    Hi to all,

    I'm trying to setup a new computer, with the following configuration:

    * Motherboard ASUS P5SD2-VM
    * 2 CPU Core Duo
    * SiS968 Southbridge
    * SiS672 Northbridge
    * Ethernet card SiS191-based

    Now, almost everything works, except the network card.

    I found the howto of howtoforge.org about the setup of this card, and used it. But the card still doesn't work.

    When I insmod the new module, I get the output on the attached file "output_sis190.txt"

    I'm using Slackware 12 with a vanilla kernel 2.6.22, as the howto says.

    By the way, when I edited the "sis190.c" file, the piece of code that I must edit doesn't look the same as in the howto. You can see it in the attached file "code_sis190.txt"

    Thanks for any opinion :) .

    As you can see in "output_sis190", the card is detected, but when the system tries to configure it, I got a "link is not ready" message...

    Hi again,

    I just tried a 2.6.25 vanilla kernel, and I got this output:

    ACPI: PCI interrupt for device 0000:00:04.0 disabled
    ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:00:04.0[A] -> GSI 19 (level, low) -> IRQ 19
    PCI: Setting latency timer of device 0000:00:04.0 to 64
    0000:00:04.0: Read MAC address from EEPROM
    0000:00:04.0: Error EEPROM read 0.
    0000:00:04.0: Read MAC address from APC.
    0000:00:04.0: Unknown PHY transceiver at address 1.
    0000:00:04.0: SiS 191 PCI Gigabit Ethernet adapter at f8e1ec00 (IRQ: 19), 00:1e:8c:a7:1f:8e
    eth0: GMII mode.
    eth0: Enabling Auto-negotiation.
    ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): eth0: link is not ready

    Seems to be a kernel problem, maybe the card is NOT supported :(

    Hm... Do you see the card in the output of
    Code:
    lspci
    ?

    Here is the output of "lspci":

    00:00.0 Host bridge: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] Unknown device 0671
    00:01.0 PCI bridge: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] SiS AGP Port (virtual PCI-t o-PCI bridge)

    As you can see, the ISA line and the Ethernet line looks just like in the HOWTO (chipset 968 and 191 Gigabit Ethernet). But the solution of the howto doesn't work.

    Strange... :confused:
